crews are respond together scene. this is a look at the triage center in a nearby stadium. stay with fox news channel on the latest on this texas plant explosion, the boston bombing investigation. good night from washington. >> we now know the profiles of people killed in the bombings and will tell but them, tonight. >> in this terrible situation let's be grateful we have a
well funded, funking government. no tax cut would have helped us deal with this. >> bill: also, in politicians are politicizing this situation. is that wrong? we'll debate that question. caution, you're about to enterer -- enter the no-spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly, thanks for watching tonight. the terror situation in america gets more intense. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo because anything can happen at any time. we may go to fnc's hard news quotes during this hour to give you latest on the boston situation. so if i suddenly disappear from view, don't be startled i that may be a good thing. now, as you may know there was confusion surrounding the investigation today but tonight looks like authorities
are closing in on possible villains. also on the terror front leters containing traces of ricin poison have been sent to washington one mailed tout president obama and others to some snores. the letters were intercepted. since september 11th all mail going into elected officials in washington, d.c. is screened. we know identities of three people killed in the bombing. they are 8-year-old martin richard a third grader from dorchester. 29-year-old crystal campbell a restaurant manager from medford, massachusetts. and lingzi lu. 13 other people have had limbs amputated and a number of the casualties remain in serious condition. now, please keep all that have in mind while digesting the following. some media people are
exploiting the terrorist attacks. others speculating in an irresponsible way. there are some examples. >> the real patriots' day is april 19th. the date that counts for people on the right in the united states. as it happens massachusetts celebrates patriot day on the third monday of every other month. >> let me ask you about domestic terrorism. they tend to be on the far right. do they advertise it? do they try to get credit as a group? hate america so much that they just want to dot damage? they don't care if they get public credit, if you sfwhil. >> it's important to recognize the recipe was shared and lauded by storm front, a neo nazi web site. the idea of leaderless resistance coming out of the
far right neo nazi patriot movement also spread over to al yaed related groups. >> that kinld of garbage is unnecessary. the worst, the worst we have seen comes from a syndicated columnist. david serrato, says, quote, if you care about everything from stopping war to reducing defense budget fro detectiving civil liberties, vesting immigration reform you should hope the bomber was a white domestic terrorist. why? because only in that case will white privilege work to prevent the boston attacks from potentially undermining progress on those other issues, unquote. apalling. this loon hoped a deranged american killed other americans so his own political agenda is not.
we'll have more on that in the second segment this evening featuring barney frank. wit wait until you see what this guy says. now, reaction to the day with us former fbi investigator bill daily. and from boston former director of the fbi new york bureau. vice president of the global security firm guards mark. very unusual today. fbi scolded the media. there were reports after rests and this, that and the other thing. cnn was in the front of that. i don't blame that. in the fog of breaking news people just jump, real fast. my question is, is it unprecedented, unusual for the fbi to scold the media? >> well, i think they'll sometime the fbi and media have not met on mutual terms.
i don't think it's true they scold the media. sometimes things like this happen, if someone from law enforcement side of things let's the word slip, says something about an arrest and media picks up on it they have a job to do, too. it's vying -- trying to vet that is, i think, responsible. >> i think cnn and cbs said there were no arrests but cnn was the one that -- but let me tell you they did scold them, fbi put out a print statement saying unintend td consequences is hurting the investigation. that is a scolding. >> it's -- it's a disagreement with the media. bill. >> i've been in this business 35 years. it's unusual for the bureau to do that. would you say it's unusual? >> boy say it's unusual but it's setting the records straight that. is what the bureau needs to be
doing. they have a responsibility to investigate all things terrorism in this country. when -- you can set the records straight may sound like scolding but it's meaning -- . >> we're not criticizing the fbi. and it's very hard to contain an investigation like this. because have you state officials in there, too. you've got local boston cops, massachusetts state police, feds, not only fbi homeland security. serve in there. so you know there are going to be leaks to the press. from your perch in boston, a lot of evidence coming in real fast to the fbi. they're analyzing physical evidence of the bombs they have pictures from the streets. i assume they're going to break this case sooner than later. i don't want to speculate but from amount of evidence coming
that is the way it looks right new. >> from the kind evidence coming in in theory that's you can use the film coming out of lord & tailor was an advantage to get that. i think it will be solved in a quick amount of time but that, too i don't want to put pressure on anyone. they'll solve it rapidly as they would. >> this is saying, here is really an interesting wrinkle. you know mr. daily being an fbi interrogateor you don't want these -- this guy or guys to lawyer up right away. you want to take them in and question them before that you charge remember them, right? >> what they thought of speaking to someone and conducting an interview, once becoming a suspect and to the point of which a state -- .
>> what about a person of interest? >> you can speak to people f they're willing to be open to you, yes. once you start pressing them and they say i don't want to cooperate, there is no real responsibility to be able to speak to you. when talking as a suspect as soon as anythin be used against them they have an opportunity of a lawyer. >> greta: -- . >> bill: gentlemen, very interesting. next on the run down barney frank politicizing the boston bombing. and later karl rove and dennis miller will weigh in on barney and more as the factor continues across the usa and around the world.

>> in the impact segment tonight, it cannot be emphasized enough that three innocent people are dead because ever the terrorism in boston. 8-year-old martin richard, 23-year-old lulinzi and 29-year-old christie campbell. ms. campbell's mother said this. >> we have broken at the depths of our heart. she was a wonderful person. everybody that knew her loved her. she loved her -- she had a heart of gold. she was always smiling. you couldn't ask for a better daughter. i can't believe this has happened. >> andven while mrs. campbell was eulogizing her daughter, politics were being played. >> in this terrible situation, let's be very grateful that we had a
well-funded functioning government. i never was as a member of congress one of the curators government, lower taxes, no tax cut would have helped us with this or will help us recover. this is very expensive. at a time like this, no one thinks about saving pennies. >> bill: unbelievable. now, we called barney frank who is no longer in congress. wanted him to come on the program but he said no and he was smart to say no because i would have yelled at him a lot more than i yelled at him last time for doing that. now. joining us from washington to react kate obenshain, a republican strategist and from los angeles kirsten powers, a fox news analyst. you know, i'm just about fed up with this politicizing the deaths of people like barney frank just did. i think it's a disgrace. kristen, you say? >> yeah. i don't think -- first of all the time something very bad. even setting that aside if you had said it next week,
i'm not sure what the difference is because he is setting up a caricature of republicans. i'm a democrat but i at least can recognize that most republicans support funding police departments and the fbi. so this idea that somehow there is any republican arguing against having law enforcement being funded, it's not based in fact. so i'm not sure why it has to be politicized that way. >> bill: okay. you know barney frank, right? kirsten? >> i know who he is. i don't know him personally. >> you know who he is. you know what he does. he is a left wing bomb thrower. he always has been. i know -- i -- he went to harvard, frank is not a stupid man. is he pain head but he is not stupid. he knew exactly what the reaction was going to be when he said this he knew exactly what i was going to do tonight. >> i'm not sure with that. >> bill: really? >> i think this is a common
thing that people a lot of democrats think and republicans think -- >> bill: you have a mother crying in boston. he knows that. and so. you shut up until the people are buried. >> yeah. well i agree with that i do think that he feels that he is helping because he thinks somehow. >> bill: i think barney frank is so damn as far as as far as narcissistic he thought about guys like me ripping him. i'm sure he will have his come back to the left wing web sites and tv shows that will run to him. did you hear what o'reilly said about you he is so as far as its i can he doesn't care about these people. >> he loves the fact that you are paying attention to him. that's exactly right.
narcissist, they only recognize they are getting attention. they have no shame. no ability to feel repentance of any sort. but, one thing kirsten i think i heard you say something about republican does this as well. right now it's the democrats trying to score political points off of a national tragedy. you saw barney frank do it in the most bombastic idiotic manner but you also had steny hoyer doing it. this guy the house democratic chair caucus chair xavier bizcera saying the boston will have to make money awith a from children's immunization to pay for this. because of sequester. focus on the fact that americans came together and rallied to the cause. we have grieving people right now. we have villains out there on the loose. that's where the attention should be. these are elected or recently retired officials who have no business politicizing this. >> bill: it even gets worse when you get into the punditry, powers.
this guy david zerotta indicated columnist. it's unbelievable. he hopes it's a right wing militian or nazi nut that did this so his agenda is not impacted by. this i'm just amazed. but you don't seem to be amazeds powers. maybe because you live with these people and you know what it is i don't know like this. nobody in my town acts this way. >> yeah. well, i know a lot of people who do. i think -- but here is the thing about david's column is that he laments that there are people who will take an attack by islamic radical and ascribe it to all muslims which of course is wrong. i don't know anybody on the panel here that would dispute that then he turns around and says i hope it was like a white neo nazi guy so we can smear all white men. doing exactly what he is criticizing. >> i think the hate in this
country, kate, is out of control. the far left, we can't give them a pass but right now as you pointed out. kate. it's all coming from one precinct. i will give you the last word. >> it is coming from one precinct. it's the demonizing of people who disagreed on another issue that has nothing to do with the bombing. i hate to say it but we saw the president of the united states when it came to the victims of sandy hook do a very similar thing politicizing a national tragedy before we even had time tom. >> bill: to be fair to the president, whether you agree or not, an argument can be made, kate, that he was doing it in the interest of public safety. >> no you can't because nothing would have happen to save those babies. it was a political -- he was scoring political points. that's the part that concerns me. >> bill: that's your opinion and you are entitled to it. there is an argument that can be made by raising the gun issue that you are doing it for the interest of public safety. >> if it would have helped public safety. >> in frank and cerata they
have no reason to do it and they did it any way. >> they were trying to score points. >> karl rove on the social implications of the boston terror attack. remember, everything changed after 9/11 in this country. will that happen again? and then we will take you back to boston to show you dramatic still pictures of the carnage that occurred on monday. those reports upcoming. i woke up with this horrible rash on my right side. an intense burning sensation like somebody had set it on fire. and the doctor said, cindie, you have shingles. he said, you had chickenpox when you were a lile girl... i said, yes, i did. i don't think anybody ever thinks they're going to get shingles. but it happened to me. for more of the inside story, visit

texas karl rove. do you know barney frank? >> yes. >> can you. >> one unpleasant person. >> bill: can you explain this to me? i know frank, but i think that -- i dislike him so much that my judgment may be clouded here. >> yeah. well, look, is he an idealogue and he is hyper partisan. so in a moment of national calamity his first incorporate distinct is not a conscience one. i just think it's how he operates is to try to find some way to say conservatives and republicans are bad and democrats and big government democrats are good. so, the first thing he says is a tax wouldn't have saved us from this. well, guess what a tax increase wouldn't have saved us either. you know, this is a terrorist attack on the soft underbelly on america. we have lots of soft targets like big sporting events, big gatherings of people, in concerts, for example. big gatherings of people doing their shopping like at the mall of america. and as a society, we are
just going to have to learn to live with the fact that we do have those soft targets and the enemy is going to strike. >> bill: okay. but, see, it's more than that though. frank was a congressman from boston. his district wasn't in the marathon or where the people were killed. but he was close. so you have got a family grieving an 8-year-old boy. all right? you have got a mother, you just saw her. and then here we go with, well, we don't want to cut taxes. and i'm saying to myself, who does this? >> well, if you have ever spent any time around barney frank, you know he has got very little empathy for other people. he is one of the most self-contained hyperpartisan, you know, big government liberals and he just -- everybody else, ordinary people, i just don't think he relates well to them. i don't think he understands how terrible that mother felt. how grief-stricken she was. >> bill: how could you not? >> well, because, look, if you ever seen him in a committee hearing?
he is one of the most rude and obnoxious people. he has no human courtesy. he rants and raves. it's barney frank. you have to live with hill. again, i don't think he has empathy and relates well to ordinary people. the idea of who has not been touched in their heart by reading these reports of what happened in boston or hearing these voices of -- suffered a loss almost beyond belief or have suffered grievous wounds to their family members. it's horrifying and we all feel touched by it it but there are some people who when they see and hear that kind of thing immediately seek for a political opportunity. score an ideological point and that's just what he does. >> bill: all right. so when you look at the boston situation and you compare it to the 9/11 situation, which changed everybody's mind set, now, some people have snapped back. some people change and now they have changed back. but the nation will never be the same. do you see any element of that in boston? could that effect the nation in any concrete way going forward?
>> i hope it doesn't cause us to change how we -- who we are and how we act. but i hope it does encourage people to recognize that america is filled with soft targets and it sounds pedestrian but if you see something suspicious, say something about it. you know, in our society, we have lots of places where terrorists of whatever stripe might like to attack if they just want to kill innocent life. a crowded mall. >> bill: sure. it is vulnerable to that. but we don't want to live >> no, we don't. we don't. but, look, there is a reasonable test here. somebody doing something suspicious and it just doesn't sound right, look right. say something to somebody. look, we have responsibility to care for each other. and after 9/11, frankly, it helped that americans came together and said, well, you know what? let me tell you about the guy who came to the air training program who didn't seem right.
let me tell you about the people who checked into the hotel in portland, maine and it didn't seem right. those things matter. but you are right. we don't want to change the fundamental nature of who we are by reacting to this in such a way that they achieve victory. >> vigilance is what you are talking about and vigilance is always a good thing. all right, mr. rove. we appreciate it as always. thank you. plenty more ahead as the factor moves along this evening. dennis miller has been fielding calls on his national program about the terror attack. he will be here to tell us what he is hearing about the folks. an episode of the family bizarrely. that episode has been pulled from the internet because of sabotage. wait until you hear this. we hope you stay tuned to those reports. oh, he's a fighter alright. since aflac is helping with his expenses while he can't work, he can focus on his recovery. he doesn't have to worry so much about his mortgage, groceries, or even gas bills. kick! kick... feel it! feel it! feel it! nice work!

dying, what goes through your mind as a human being? not as a journalist but as a human being? >> that's a great question. i'm compassionate, emotional, just like anybody else. i tried not to interfere with the rescue workers. i try to be as, you know, as discreet as possible. in a situation like, this you just have to be there. you have to immerse yourself into that scene. you are the eyes for the world. i mean, this -- i was angry. did i everything i did to get beyond that barricade and be on the sidewalk and chronicle everything that was happening in front of me. i literally was walking through blood. i wasn't comfortable with being there and i don't wish that on anybody but i knew i had a job to do. >> bill: now, when you are confronted with somebody bleeding and injured, do you help them and then shoot and do all of that? i will tell you a story about what happened to me one time in a second. i want you to answer that question first. >> you know, another great
question. right after it happened, i mean, you are at the finish line and whenever you are at the marathon there are so many emts and mayor medics and firefighters and police. they literally jumped over that barricade first in seconds. >> bill: they had it covered they didn't need you to do anything. i was in a situation one time in a war zone in argentina in the falklands where my photographer got run down and hit his head and was bleeding from the ear on the concrete and the army was chasing us. i had to make a decision and i dragged him off, you know, but at the same time i'm looking around and trying to do my job but i figure i had to get this guy out of there. because that was more important. but, in boston you are absolutely right so many people there because of that tent. when you have the marathon people can get hurt. there was a concentration that you didn't have to do it. final thing, 48 hours later, do you have a new perspective on this terror attack? or do you feel the same way
you felt when you were right in the middle of it? >> the first thing i thought of when i got back to the globe, i don't probably want to cover the marathon again. i don't know if i can i mean, i'm there to cover a joyous occasion, it's a sporting event. somebody just destroyed the spirit of the event. i mean, if you saw all the flags from all the countries flying in the wind and everybody, you know, cheering on and it was joyous. to have that happy i can't express how i feel. 48 hours later i'm not sleeping well. i have those images of what i saw going through my mind. i will cope with it but i think there are people in worse situations that have to cope first. >> all right, john. you did a great job. you are going to win a number of awards for what you did. i know you didn't do it for that but your chron ling of chronic ling of the event very important for people
to know. >> thank you. >> bill: it will be miller time. d man has been talking to people around the country will about the terror attack. miller is next. are you still sleeping? just wanted to check and make sure that we were on schedule. the first technology of its kind... mom and dad, i have great news. is now providing answers families need. siemens. answers.

o'reilly. in the miller time segment tonight, let's get to the sage of southern california joins us from santa barbara. miller, your daily radio syndicated program can you hear it from folks all over the country what are they saying to you? >> you know, i would say the most interesting tid bit i gleaned a woman who doesn't call a lot but comments a lot on the site. mary z fine boy who fought for us named andrew. she said the must interesting thing. you have to keep your ear to the ground because people have insights when she said the reason nobody is laying claim to this like they do in the past is because barack obama has proven himself so adetroit at targeted drone use that that's not the business to be in anymore laying claim to things. i believe our intelligence agencies have the equivalent of the maps of the stars homes of the preeminent terrorist organization. i don't think you wanted to be out there saying i did that in a world where like i said the president has
upped, increased and is better at drone use. >> bill: that's an interesting comment. people are they sad? angry? generally speaking when they call you? what's the attitude? >> i would say if i had to play amateur shrink they are all angry but we live in a weird time where i don't know. i watched jesse watters yesterday. can you see a lot of machinations almost a root gold set to us tamping down what we assume to be our basic instincts which i still think of as common sense. everybody has a take on this. human beings do guess in the immediate wake of things. if you want to zip your guest inside, that's fine. if you want to say your guess outloud on what happened here, i don't view it as the worst crime against humanity. i find it interesting how hesitant we are just to feel like i would like to find out who did this and i wish they got killed. you know, you see a the lo of pima niewferg around
that. >> bill: not yesterday though with watters, had you people go crucify the guy, beat him. and that. >> i saw a couple of those billy. you don't concur that there were a few people i watch with watters and they were kind of saying that's a loaded term. i wanted to say something real quickly about axelrod and the president's reaction to this. and i saw your saying that you were -- listen, i'm not -- this is no conspiracy thing. i don't dislike the president. but when i watch those two things back to back there are a couple interesting things there, bill. do you have one second? >> sure, absolutely. go. it reminded me of tiger woods after the fact say saying that he moved the ball back in a couple yards in the masters and therefore stepping in it on day two when the president says any time bombs are used against innocence it's terrorism at that point day one becomes important to me in a vague way i just go wow, yesterday, you didn't say that and the second thing is when he said we want to find out who did
this, and why they did this. i find why to be such a is you purr superfluous. fools errand. i want to know who did it and i want them to be brought to justice. there were a couple things there. lastly when axelrod said the president didn't want to use the word terrorist because everybody knows what that means these days, i think he was saying that what they mean is radical islamic terrorist. listen, when i say food stamp recipients, i mean food stamp recipients. i don't mean black people. when i say terrorist, i mean terrorist. i don't necessarily mean islamic terrorist. i want axelrod to do me the ultimate gesture and quit figuring out what mean. >> bill: excellent, miller. all right. i'm going to book a bolder fresher show in barney frank's block right in front of his house, all
right? we'll get the crowd and they can watch it. after the show you and i are going to go to barney's house, drag him out and we can't do physical violence to him. that wouldn't be good. he is an old man. but we will scorn him. you and i will scorn him. >> listen. here's the thing about barney frank. sometimes i find that liberals in lieu of actual empathetic gestures, heart felt empathy, they turned it into an affair of their mind. they intellectually empathize with you. barney frank will tell it you everything he does is for the disenfranchised. the people under foot. and you just want to say can you start your empathy by just not being a jerk to the people you come across in your day-to-day life? can you take a moment and not be arrogant about your inner voice that you bring it out immediately in the wake of a tragedy like this and tell us what you feel. be heart felt empathetic not head driven empathetic.
